Delray Represents at Tonight's Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant (Photos)
Lindsey Way from Fort Lauderdale was crowned in 2011. Will South Florida take the title again?
If you need proof that south Florida women are beautiful, you need look no further than tonight's 16th annual Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant at the Fillmore Miami Beach.
Two of the 101 contestants, chosen from about 18,000 Hooters "girls" worldwide, are from the Glades Road Hooters in Boca Raton. We figured you might want to meet your local home-town girls:
Amanda Jemini (21) grew up in Parkland and started working at Hooters while studying at Palm Beach Community College. She's a model and has an Associate's in communications. Jemini is contestant number 11.
Kelsey Bourdon (22), a South Dakota native, currently lives in Delray Beach (which is great for south Floridians). A senior at Florida Atlantic University, Bourdon is working toward a degree in business management. Bourdon is contestant number 12.
Tonight's winner will take home $50,000, a crown, and a place of honor in the next Hooters swimsuit calendar. Last year's winner, Lindsey Way of Fort Lauderdale, will crown this year's winner. Let's hope the title stays in south Florida.
The pageant will be broadcast live, starting at 10 p.m. tonight on FX. It will also stream live via Facebook. You can also vote for Jemini or Bourdon in the fan favorite competition here.
